But holy shit can you believe the finish to that Red Sox game? God almighty. Not sure if they are going to be able to win two games at the Trop, but tonight could be a momentum changer.
The Red Sox have completed the largest comeback ever by a team facing playoff elimination, defeating the Rays, 8-7, on Drew’s walk-off ground-rule double/single over the head of Rays right fielder Gabe Gross to score Youkilis. The Red Sox were down 7-0 following the sixth inning, but scored four in the seventh, three in the eighth, and the game-winner in the ninth. Drew had previously hit a two-run homer to make it 7-6 in the eighth. It’s pandemonium at Fenway Park. The Sox trail in the series, three games to two, and will board a plane bound for St. Petersburgh, Fla. tonight.
I don’t need to imagine the pandemonium taking place having been there for the craziness of 2004.
